It isn’t abnormal for both men and women to begin to experience symptoms associated with low testosterone levels as they start to grow older. Testosterone, an important hormone responsible for libido as well as building muscle and bone mass, is produced by the adrenal glands, ovaries, and testes. Even though declining testosterone levels are normal after a certain age, the side effects can be difficult and may create problems such as decreased libido, weight gain, mood swings, or fatigue.
Once they begin to experience the consequences of decreasing hormone levels, many men and women seek out hormone replacement therapy as a means of improving their quality of life, reversing the symptoms of low testosterone levels in their body, and feeling young again. There are many different ways that testosterone hormone replacement can be administered, but not all methods are created equal.
At Premier Health & Wellness, we have worked diligently to determine which means of administering testosterone hormone replacement therapy is the most effective and has the fewest side effects. Research confirms that our method of using hormone pellet implants is the most effective and the most similar to how testosterone naturally occurs in the body.
How do Pellets Work?
Testosterone hormone pellet implants are made by pressing testosterone into very small cylinder that are a little bit bigger than a grain of rice. These pellets are able to deliver steady hormone levels over the course of 3 to 4 months for women and 4 to 5 months for men. This method is so effective because there are no fluctuations in the hormone levels being delivered, providing consistent results to both men and women.
A pellet is placed in the the body by making a small incision in the upper buttocks, which is first numbed using local anesthesia.
What are the Benefits of Testosterone Hormone Pellet Implants?
Studies examining the effectiveness of testosterone hormone pellet implants have found that they provide exceptional relief of symptoms normally associated with low testosterone levels. Individuals using this particular method or hormone replacement therapy can expect to experience relief from the symptoms of menopause, maintenance of their current bone density, a return to typical sleep patterns, increased sex drive, and improved sexual performance.
When a proper dosage of testosterone is not given, patients may experience negative side effects. Determining the correct dosage is heavily dependent on each patient’s individual health situation. This is why it is so important to work with an experience provider who understands how to correctly insert the hormone pellet and select the proper dosage for each patients.
